William, have you tried any of the 30-30 bullets in 150 grain? I've been shooting the Sierra 150 flat tip and it's impacting about five inches high! I was wondering if you've experienced similar results with the lighter bullet. For that reason, I've been considering the 170 grain flat tip, but in the sierrra. The other components I have been using are Winchester brass with Winchester Primers and Hodgdons 4895 powder.william iorg said:Lindsey,
I have shot the .307 for quite awhile. I have had more one shot "Dropped in it's tracks" kills on whitetails with this cartridge than any other. Start your load work with 40.0 grains of IMR 4064 and the Speer 170 gr. flat nose .30-30 bullet. At 2300+ fps it's not the highest velocity but accurate in more than one rifle.
